Overcoming Barriers Program

JMU & First Tee Shenandoah Collaborate

Since 2010, we have been actively involved with the Overcoming Barriers Program established at James Madison University. This program was founded in 2010 by Dr. Tom Moran, an Assistant Professor of Kinesiology. Overcoming Barriers was developed in an effort to provide an opportunity for children and adults with special needs to become more involved in sports and recreation. This program is a service not only for individuals with special needs, but their families, by providing support to the parents of individuals with disabilities who do not have access to other sports programs in the Harrisonburg area.
